Overview

The icons of Rock ‘n’ Roll and R&B are quickly dying – but not fast enough for record executive, Malcolm Spier. Unable to tap the vein of modern audiences, Spier Records and Entertainment turns to the ever-reliable nostalgia machine and recruits desperate artists who are looking for one final moment of glory. Malcolm, along with his lawyer, Charlie Orin, and their protégé, Makayla Rogers, soon realise that the only thing more profitable than producing a living legend is reissuing the songs of a dead one.

Editorial Reviews **A Review from: Judge, 4th Annual Self-Published e-Book Awards.

Record Prophets by Matthew Seery takes the reader to dark places but always with a humorous twist. Seery introduces the reader to the underworld of record producers with questionable motives and operations. The major bad guy Malcolm starts a campaign to buy up and revitalize has-beens in the world of rock and roll and rhythm and blues in order to line his own pockets at the expense of the artists. When his first oldie goldie’s unexpected death turns into a gold mine, Malcolm quickly devises a plan to exploit more of the oldsters quickly.

Seery has concocted an unusual tale about a milieu that is beyond the experience of most of his readers. The cast of characters is believable and likable and well developed. The plot thickens with each page turn and twists around corners to places never imagined. The author’s play on words never ceased to appeal. The ending is both a surprise and expected.

Seery has a vivid imagination, a bent for humor and talent for unfolding both with cleverly chosen and connected phrases that resonated with this reader. The tale moves forward at a good pace, is never bogged down and always beckons the reader to the next page.
